About This Product
This vintage nib features a large indent, meant to increase the ink capacity for loose, bold script. The reliable, firm stub tip makes it easy to get consistent line variation for line after line of calligraphic writing. Made around 1950 in Bonn, Germany, these vintage nibs were still hand-ground, unlike most American nibs of that period.
Thanks to the protective coating applied to all dip pens (even new ones produced today), these pens are in excellent vintage condition. They've been checked for rust and other defects by our experts and are ready to return to service on your desk.
As with any dip pen, you will need to remove the protective coating so that ink will stick to the nib consistently. To remove the coating, simply dip your new pen in ink a couple of times and wipe it off. Repeat until the ink coats the nib completely and doesn't bead up. This process takes about 15 seconds and only needs to be done once, before you use the pen for the first time.
